Dates of the school year[edit]

Greetings all. The page Academic term lists countries by the date/extent of the school year. North America, Europe, Asia, and Oceania are almost exclusively represented on the list. This country has not yet been added onto the page. Would anyone be able to pop over, and give it a quick edit? Thanks, samwaltz 22:31, 16 August 2007 (UTC) sxj

Girls have less possibilities in school than boys...[edit]

This comment in the 'Structure' section had been added to the article in the 20:38, 7 January 2008 edit by 71.255.179.218. This may or may not be true, but there is no claim of verifiability made, so I've removed it.

Language of instruction[edit]

Does anyone have a good reference for the language of instruction in Nepal? My guess is that they speak Nepali in primary-secondary and possibly English for accredited tertiary programs, but I'm having trouble finding information about this. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.200.180.171 (talk) 17:12, 10 November 2010 (UTC)

Reconstruction of the article[edit]

Hi. I have made some significant edits on the content of this article. Here is a short abstract of what I have been doing and why:

  • Rewriting the Lead: It was a copy/past of this page. The source I have been using looks a bit more reliable.
  • adding basic information on vocational education, based on a UNESCO-UNEVOC report. Vocational education is a rising challenge and it was sad not to have a sentence about it.
  • "Cleaning up" the external link section. I have tried to follow WP:EXT, especially regarding "official websites". I have deleted dead links, blatant publicity, charitable organization. I have spared a link to the world database (not a real "external link" but an interesting reliable source) and one leading a blog: The latter is definitely oriented, but it also looks documented, and gives a rare insight on the Nepalese examination system. I have added two reliable reports from UNESCO that contains info but also useful diagrams on the education system of Nepal.
  • Deletion of the lists and creation of a "tertiary education" section: All those lists were confusing. There are better in the dedicated article List of Universities in Nepal. the "Tertiary education" section brings no new content. It is only a collection of the texts formerly used as introduction to the lists.
  • Deletion of the ranking and the scholarship sections. The Ranking section was coming from an unofficial and unreliable source (no further information on those "polls", no dates...). The scholarship section was just not relevant regarding WP:NOTGUIDE (and was also unsourced)

I have almost not added/checked the content. If someone wants to improve this article, I think he/she should check the origin of the texts (which I suspect to be, like the former lead, copy/past from other websites) and bring new sources. I'm willing to help a bit whoever is motivated to start the job. Regards, KaptainIgloo (talk) 09:57, 10 July 2014 (UTC)
